After losing a loved one to cancer, Dimple dedicated her life to helping people overpower their journey. She co-founded Love Heals Cancer and 

Born and raised in Rajasthan, Dimple excelled in everything. She graduated from IIM Calcutta in 2017 and soon entered the world of entrepreneurs. Her first startup was an e-commerce fashion platform. She also has experience working for the Bank of New York Mellon (BoNY Mellon) and Reliance Industries.

Several platforms such as YourStory, Rajasthan Patrika, and Brilliant Read have applauded her courage and hard work. Dimple often speaks at several workshops and conferences. 

Dimple was also elected as a Cartier Women’s Initiative 2023 Fellow.

The Cartier Women’s Initiative is an annual international entrepreneurship program that aims to drive change by empowering women to impact entrepreneurs.

Starting with LHC wasn’t an easy task. But with a determined heart and with the support of family and trusted mentors, it became a significant landmark in healthcare. 

We were honored to connect with Dimple and learn about her venture. 

Q. What do you love about LHC? How do you think it is different from other organizations?

A. What I love about it the most is the cause that we all work for together. The beauty of it is the people who connect with us and support us through the cause. For example, today, an electrician came in to do some fitting, and when he learned that we help cancer patients, he charged us less out of love and appreciation. People connect with this cause. People make it different. People have been supporting it from all around the world. The culture of healing and understanding cancer patients doesn’t matter where you come from; we take care of you. Being an NGO, we make it self-sustainable while being professional and providing quality services. 

Q. What type of support does LHC receive?

A. People offer all kinds of support, from prayer to financial support, volunteering, writing articles, and helping with events. Cancer survivors provide support to cancer patients. We receive both tangible and intangible support.

Q. You believe that each patient should have control over the choices of treatment. What made you come to this realization?

A. My journey made me realize this. We have 100 choices of healing. One is mainstream therapy, which is radiation surgery chemotherapy, complementary therapy, and many more. For a patient, this can be overwhelming to choose., which we started recently, is India’s first integrated cancer center to improve quality of life and extend life support for cancer patients. Once a person is diagnosed with cancer, they lose control over their life. They have a lot of people suggesting different things. At LHC, we empower them with their own choices on how to live or how to die.

Q. I’m sure starting an organization with such an honorable mission isn’t easy. How did you grow to conquer fears, challenges, and setbacks?

A. The straightforward answer is the journey that I had gone with Nitesh, and losing him to cancer, was the biggest challenge. After that, every setback in life starts to feel small. Even if I fail, it won’t matter in the end. What matters is how much you tried. I focus on the journey and not the outcome. We knew Nitseh wouldn’t survive, but we never gave up. His journey towards the end mattered more. He was happy. Starting this wasn’t easy; the intentions were pure. I took up some training. Many people became part of this journey, so the beginning was easy. I believed if I were to impact one life, my goal would be achieved. I think changes come with experience. 

Q. You were awarded for Top 100 Healthcare Leaders Award at IFAH (International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare). How did you feel having LHC recognized at an international level?

A. Last week, World Cancer Congress awarded my partner, Kishan, and I, the Top 101 Healthcare Leaders. Both are international-level awards. When I see both LHC and getting recognized at a global level for their work, I feel motivated, humbled, and proud. It’s all for a noble cause. We want to create an impact. It’s just the beginning and a long way to go. But we find motivation in every moment. 

Q. What’s a typical day like for you at work?

A. We start at 9, but I don’t have an end time, unfortunately. I am always running around since it’s harder to manage two organizations. We talk to employees about their tasks, and we then observe our current patients and counsel them. We keep our patients a priority throughout the day. Our day is usually packed with meetings with breaks in between. I try to work out and meditate when I get time. I use breaks to calm my mind. I sit in silence without my phone and books. 

Q. What’s your favorite thing to do when you have time to yourself?

A. I love to sit quietly and meditate without distractions, but this rarely happens. I love to be around nature, though.

Q. Trying to help others heal is rewarding. But how do you keep up with the energy around you? How do you recharge yourself with positivity when you feel down?

A. I feel lucky to have a life partner and work partner who understands my day or my world. He makes sure I’m always motivated and supported. He brings a lot of positivity to my world. We often go out for tea and crack jokes (bad jokes).

Q. Do you believe healing can help patients with any chronic illness? How?

A. Of course. Healing means feeding your body with good thoughts, and whole food; being around a kind and supportive environment makes you better. All chronic illnesses are similar. The body should heal from the root. Emotional and mental wellness is to be fed well in your body. 

Q. What would you advise someone who has been diagnosed with cancer recently? 

A. There will be trauma, so take time to come out of that trauma. Don’t make decisions you might regret later. Ask your doctor how much time you have before you start any treatment. Once you are in a better state of mind and have decided your next step, go through all your choices. Always take more than one opinion. Read your pathology report because sometimes they can be inaccurate. With diagnosis comes depression, so take care of yourself. Take time to yourself, be around good friends and family, play with your pet, and eat good food. It always helps. Taking care of your diet, emotional, and mental wellness health, and fitness is essential. Talk to your counselor for the best suggestions.

Q. What impact do you want to have in the world or change you want to see or make?

A. The impact I want on this world is growing a healthy healing community where everyone is trying to follow a healthy lifestyle and feel empowered, having a choice and control over their life. To make a call for their own life. 

Q. Who are the NGOs in the same space you consider as role models or benchmarks?

A. Many NGOs in India are doing incredible work in their way. But LHC has taken an integrative approach to treating cancer patients. We provide health with integrative medical therapy, unlike others. 

The role model for me, my mentor, is Dr. Michel Erner in the US. He has taught me everything about cancer. He is my guru.

Q. Lastly, does the organization have plans to expand?

A. Yes, we are in many cities today. We have volunteers supporting us everywhere. Our main office is in Mumbai, but we observe patients across India. We plan to have multiple centers in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, and Delhi. And have physical healing centers there.
